Cockapoos were one of the first modern “designer dogs” – an adorable mix of hypoallergenic, intelligent Poodles, and friendly, fun-loving Cocker Spaniels. These dogs are small but pack big personalities and massive amounts of affection. They get along great with everyone in the family and are easy to train and care for. If their exercise needs are met, Cockapoos make great companions for nearly any living environment.
Cockapoos (also known as Cockapoodle, Cockerpoo, or Cock-a-Poo) are a mixed breed of the Poodle and Cocker Spaniel. Their coats often have long, soft curls that can come in a variety of colors including red, blue, black, apricot, brown, white, and cream. Thanks to the Poodle in them, they don’t shed, but do need regular brushing.
Cockapoos have an outgoing nature and will get along nicely with everyone they meet. They have a moderate energy level and require daily exercise to stay healthy and well-behaved.
Being highly intelligent, Cockapoos are pretty easy to train. They don’t bark as much as other guard-dog breeds, but they will bark when they see anyone approaching the home.
Cockapoos are a smaller breed. They are generally classified into one of four size categories:
Teacup Toy: Grows to less than 6 pounds in weight and less than 10 inches tall.
Toy Cockapoo: Grows to weigh up to 12 pounds and up to 10 inches in height but with a bigger build than the Teacup.
Miniature Cockapoo: Grows to weigh between 13 and 18 pounds and 11 and 14 inches in height.
Standard Cockapoo: Grows to weigh over 19 pounds and at least 15 inches tall.
The breed is generally quite healthy and enjoys an average lifespan of 12 to 15 years.
